Rhino Magic - Home With You

Fuzzed up laments from the wilds of Wexford. Rhino Magic has made a six song mini album full of joyous distorted pastel pop. It's the soundtrack to a found hi8 video of a 10th birthday party. Fizzing coke and tayto burps, never ending hazy adventures in roaming sun drenched fields till "the mother" calls everyone in for cake cutting and more coke. Like No Monster Club, Hipster Youth and Squarehead, Rhino Magic wears his lofi-pop heart on his sleeve. Is this our summer of Irish noise pop love?

These Happenings Are Happening Tomorrow

Lucky Dragons's "Dream Island Laughing Language" LP was one of the best albums of 08. Copy and paste tribal gamalen magic from start to finish. His interactive live show are pretty intense, I had an outer body experience at his last one, (a house show after he played earlier supporting Dirty Projectors), he passes out touch sensitive tentacles and shaman rain sticks in to the audience for them to make the music, ethereal chakra drones and clicks ebbing me up and up till I opened my eyes and saw two lads hitting each other in their heads with the sticks; oh well.
In support for the night is lucky old me (School Tour) and hurdy gurdy druid folk troupe "Woven Skulls".

I knew I cant be the only one that enjoys records slowed down. Here's Hope Sandoval classic played in the "Ethereal Speed". You can get this song (At normal Speed) on a comp I made a while back called "Summer Blues".
